Anyone who says this has probably never seen Kelly play, their games are nothing alike. I watched him in the tournament this year, nothing like Madsen.

Not close.
He's the poor mans Bargnani. 7 footer who likes the three and doesn't rebound much. Or I like the Jonathan Bender comparison that was made. I like 40% on threes and 80% at the line for a guy who gets fouled a lot (since he's a weak finisher and guys forget that and hack). He's a better perimeter defender though than you'd think. Reminds a bit of Donyell Marshall.

WTF?? His game is nothing like Madsen's. Why because he's white. Or Walton or Mihm? :disagree: If not that what is the similarity? I don't recall Mad Dog being an ace from behind the arc. Wow!

What kind of foot injury was it and when was the surgery?

Gets off butt and finds own answer ^^^ :man10:

Kelly missed 13 games last season after experiencing setbacks with right foot a summer after having surgery on it. After the past season ended, Kelly had another surgery that entailed having a bigger screw to fix the fractured metatarsal. He’s currently approaching the 11th week of a 12-week rehab, preventing him from working out with all NBA teams, including the Lakers.

Both Kupchak and Kelly also expressed serious doubts he could play in the Lakers’ Vegas summer league team from July 12-22. Instead, they’re preparing for Kelly to fully rehab so he could arrive to training camp in late September completely healthy.

“I was realistic when you don’t work out and have a foot injury, that’s something people will have to look at and they may not be willing to take a chance,” Kelly said. “I sure was believing I was worth the chance. I’m going to prove anybody wrong that decided not to get me. I’m going to work hard everyday knowing that the Lakers gave me my opportunity and I’m going to go for it.”

Kelly sure went for it when he returned from his foot injury his senior year.

He scored a career-high 36 points Duke’s 79-76 win March 2 against the Miami Hurricanes after only practicing 20 minutes the night before. But Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski told Kelly he would start anyway. Kelly recalled KKrzyzewski still encouraged him after missing his first few shots.

“It was an amazing night and something I’ll never forget,” Kelly said. “But I think in a way, that showed some of the ability that I had and my ability to shoot the ball and make plays and do things like that change a game.”

Kelly believes he can also make an impact with the Lakers considering they’re in need of consistent outside shooters that can play multiple positions.

“I’m a guy that can shoot the basketball with the size and length that I have,” said Kelly, who said he’s tried to model his game after New Orleans forward Ryan Anderson, Dallas forward Dirk Nowitzki and Orlando forward Hedo Turkoglu. “There’s a spot on a lot of rosters that need that. I certainly think the Lakers are one of them and I have to earn everything that I get and I know that. I’m going to have to work hard. I think my ability to shoot the basketball and my ball friendliness for a guy my size can pass a little bit, dribble the ball a little bit. Those are the things that will allow me to play on a team like the Lakers.”

Still, there’s some question marks. Namely on defense.

“Through my career at Duke, that was something that I really did improve on,” Kelly said. “I know that I always work hard on the defensive end, and as I continue to grow as a player and work on my lateral mobility, I think I got a lot better. By my senior year, I often was being put on the best big guy and have to either battle in the paint or guard a quicker guy. I think I can do those things. I do know that I’ve worked really hard to be a great help-side defender. I take charges and block shots and do the little things. That’s what I pride myself on as a player that does the little things and works hard. I think those things will transition well.”

It remains to be seen how smoothly that will happen.

But Kelly could have a trusty ally in Kobe Bryant, whom he met last summer in Vegas when the Lakers star played for Team USA under Krzyzewski in the 2012 London Olympics. Kelly also has support from Kupchak, who otherwise would have served as adversary in the Duke-North Carolina rivalry.

“I’ve been handed a great opportunity and I really look forward to taking advantage of it,” Kelly said. “It’s hard to put into words how excited I am. That’s all I can say. I’m just unbelievably excited.”

I really like this pick. He is a big who can shoot, which is something that D'Antoni likes to have in his scheme. I saw a few Duke games this past NCAA season and he shot well in the majority of those. I think he can easily find a role to play here. Great second round selection, in my opinion. Don't expect him to be anything more than a role player though. But he is NOT a Mark Madsen type at all.

With Dwight gone, he's looking like the starting PF of YOUR Los Angeles Lakers :man10:
The End is nigh. Time for a total Cut and Shuffle. Kobe contract was a mistake...time to avoid making more. The future is here, whether we want it to be or not. An era is over, but for the death rattle, and it's time for the cycle to begin anew. Growth and change are scary and painful, but alas...nothing worth achieving comes easily.

Actually, I believe that would be Jordan Hill, with Pau at center. We also have signed no players, so it's not like we couldn't get a better PF than Kelly with the minimum or mini-MLE if Dwight walked.

Antoni won't start Jordan Hill, he is not a fit for the system AND they don't get along AND his skillset doesn't mesh with Gasol. And you're dreaming if you think that we can afford better...Kenyon Martin is getting mini-mle money...Matt Barnes got 4 mil per year for god's sake. We are adding ONLY d-league level players or washed up retreads...we have no cache, money or even competitive edge to offer anymore...even Kobe has lost most of his shine.

The Lakers always get a surprise player that does well each season. Will Kelly be the first Laker rookie to contribute immediately since NVE? He's mature and very smart he can very well d that. I think he'll be the feel good story of the upcoming season. :jam2:
